    Competing is not the goal in this finger-twisting game for couples. The first minute feels a bit awkward, but after a while you'll laugh over the absurd nature of seemingly impossible finger exercises.

    OlliOlli is a fast paced trial of will and skateboard techniques, having you swearing and laughing throughout it’s many challenges, as well as coming back for more each day.

    Despite its game mechanics being streamlined to cater the console-audience with a high tempo and a smaller set of statistics, Dragon Age II is still a massive role-playing adventure. With its immersive storyline and good class system, it its yet another Bioware game in the collection of great role-playing experiences.

    The premise of Little Inferno may sound a tad odd: You buy stuff, and then you burn it. Over and over again. But in fact, this is a game unlike any other this reviewer has ever played, and in a good way. Granted, it is a small game, but it is original, self-aware, self-ironic and self-referencing bordering on the postmodern. It even creates a brand new genre for itself, namely the burn 'em up.

    EA works steadily towards making this as real as possible, and with that they are also ensuring the series feels fresh. Tiger has been surrounded by alot of turbulence off the course the last year, but on the digital green he's still king.the last year, but on the digital green he's still king.

    The Settlers 7: Paths to a Kingdom is a good comeback for a series who has been battered with mediocre releases for several years. It is compelling, fun and has expanded the depth of the original Settlers gameplay with its take on trade and technology.

    Rune Factory: Frontier is far from perfect. A lot of things could have been better, and especially the time management can become a nuisance. If you soldier on, this can still be an incredibly rewarding game. A sometimes fantastic experience marred by a myriad small issues.

    Overhaul Games has succeeded in making one of the big RPG classics available on modern machines. The infinity engine looks great in HD and all the esthetics are well preserved. The new stuff is okay, but most importantly Baldur's Gate can now be fully enjoyed again, as it deserves.

    By playing Distant Worlds you are essentially creating your own epic space opera. Its living universe and great depth makes it a highly enjoyable and addictive strategy game.

    Madden NFL 12 is a two-edged sword. On one hand it offers new players, post-trade rosters and some new features. On the other hand it is essentially very similar to the Madden games released over the last years, but if you are a fan, you will probably not be disappointed.

    Playing rock music with plastic instruments is old-fashioned, and that's why Harmonix gives you a Rock Band game that doesn't use these primitive tools. Instead you play notes with your controller and this is surprisingly fun. All instruments are well implemented and the fact that you can play ANY song from the massive Rock Band library is a feat in itself.

    A tense and unnerving experience that wonderfully captures the style and atmosphere of the original film. Alien: Isolation, in spite of its faults, is a welcome and accomplished take on a great franchise long deserving of a grate game.

    The campaign is too short, even for an arcade game. The gameplay is repetitive, and you'll probably be tired long before you've played all 100 levels. The multiplayer can be good fun with some friends, but don't expect the fun to last all night.

    The unique gameplay where unlit platforms disappear makes this game original and entertaining for a while. Closure serves good logic based puzzles, but can become somewhat repetitive after a short while.

    Theatrhythm Final Fantasy is a surprisingly solid rhythm game that both Final Fantasy fans and general video game music enthusiasts should try.

    Hydroventure: Spin Cycle is a fresh puzzle game, whose many uses of water never ceases to entertain, despite some bad turns from time to time. The game has a steady progression and clever puzzles which keep your mind constantly occupied, while not being overly complex, thus making for an overall rewarding experience.

    The Wonderful 101 is a good game, marred by insisting on repeating both enemies, inside jokes and half-baked variations. The combat system works excellent, and is enough to make sure the game thrives.

    Mario Golf: World Tour simulates many of the elements a golf player in the real world must consider before taking a shot. Wind, weather and terrain affects the ball in realistic ways and makes every shot different from each other. Mixed with incredible graphics, this game will surely please both non-golfers and golf pros.

    Killzone: Mercenary is sort of like an ambitious little brother, trying to fill his older brother's shoes – and in some ways he is able to do so. The result is a handheld shooter that looks and plays great, but it is far from perfect.

    This refurbished version of Baldur's Gate II is true to its source material and does a good job in making one of the best fantasy epics in the history of computer role playing games available for a modern audience.

    Hand of Fate is a really unique game, with a Dungeons & Dragons feel to its excellent cardplay. Its only a shame is that technical shortcomings and lackluster combat kinda break the experience.

    Curse of Naxxramas is a fun expansion, that besides giving the player a bunch of bosses to test their skills against, also delivers 30 new and (mostly) interesting cards to play with.

    A punk-apocalyptical action game with an intense rock&roll atmosphere. Charlie Murder is a real treat for fans of old school "beat 'em up" games, although the gameplay suffers from stacking too many underdeveloped ideas into the same package.

    New Super Mario Bros. 2 isn't really all that new anymore. What you get is basically the same game as the first one for the Nintendo DS, but with less engaging levels, fewer surprises in terms of power-ups and gameplay, and a boring gimmick set on capturing your inner kleptomaniac.

    Dead Rising 3 is a lot of fun. It’s also a lot of zombies, a lot of cheesy story, a lot of uninspired graphics and a lot of crazy weapons and costumes.

    Warband doesn't offer much new besides the enjoyable multiplayer, but what it does offer makes it the best version of Mount & Blade so far. If you haven't played Mount & Blade before, you should definitely play Warband.
